The Football Association has banned an unnamed player for six months after he twice tested positive for cocaine.

The player first failed a drugs test in early 2004 and appeared before a disciplinary hearing in August of the same year.

He was ordered to reappear in April 2005 but was caught again when he was tested again between October and December.

UK Sport claim the player received his ban and a fine in December.

In a similar case, another unnamed player has been given a suspended six-month ban after twice testing positive for marijuana.
